We all know that worry destroys your life, the question is what to do about it? Can we really manage our worries and anxiety.

Now, that one of the worst years in history has ended, 2020, makes us understand that we can persevere–even if it feels like our circumstances are killing us.

For many, 2020 was gut-wrenching and filled with worry. Worry simply put destroys your life, your mood, your hope. It actually paralyzes you. If often causes you to make bad decisions.

While it sounds simple to say wake up and find a new day and a new attitude, it really does make a difference in how your day unfolds.

So, what if over the next 21 days you tried to watch and, perhaps, alter your morning thoughts?

What if you woke up and gave thanks? What if you woke up and let the good feelings in?

Just maybe the day ahead wouldn’t seem mundane. Maybe the day ahead would naturally attract good vibes, opportunity–it just might turn into the kind of day you always wanted.

So, give it a try.

After all, you already know how worry destroys your life and now it’s time to see what you can do about it.

Morning thoughts: Wake up to a new day. A beautiful radiant light shining brightly on you. Let go of your worries. Let your mind relax and your soul be enriched by each new moment.

Find peace in this moment and allow your mind to leave behind the fear and worries that so frequently reside in your brain. Know that when you hold on to worry, it creates chaos in your life.

The following is from my book: “No Worries: 5 Steps To PEACE, Even in chaos.

“Four Characteristics of Worry
1. Worry equals mind clutter/trash (it rots in your head, if you let it)
2. Worry is never alone—fear and anxiety are its roots
3. Worry paralyzes your life, immobilizes creativity, suffocates hope,
and blinds you to opportunities and treasures
4. Worry is a breeding ground for chaos, dissatisfaction, hopelessness,
and poor choices.”

Chose peace and the freedom to let go of your worries. Be alive and present in this moment and you’ll notice beauty and joy that you might have been overlooking! Rather than battle with your worries, take a breath, concentrate on the flow of air in and through your body…gently follow the exhale…inviting a rhythmic pattern of breathing of equal parts in and out to calm and awaken you to the present moment.

Remember, to retrain your brain it takes consistent practice. Save a little room in your day to meditate… you are worth it! My Worriless Living Meditations can help you get started.
